are incorrect. next up, true or false, the city of detroit is holding an important election tomorrow for the top leadership of that great american city. is that true or is that false? that is false. the city of detroit is holding an election tomorrow but it is pointless because there is no democracy in detroit anymore. the guy on the left of your screen here is dave bing who is the mayor of detroit elected by the people in 2009. he's not running again for the position and i think i know why. the guy on the right is kevin ohr, detroit's emergency manager, he was never elected to his position, he was put in place by michigan's governor. he makes 75% more than the governor makes. whatever he wants, detroit does because he is the emergency manager not the elected leader and emergency managers get to run that city now, not the people who get elected. so tomorrow we'll go through the motions, more than a than a doz will be running in a primary to become detroit's next powerless figurehead mayor who can't do anything. the top two finishers regardless of party will move on to the general election in nov

who came to detroit in 2009. this is more -- is more general. i think if anything's changed it's that in the aftermath of the attack on our facility in benghazi and the deaths there of four americans and the continuing ha la ba lu from congress about embassy safety, people just want to err on the side of taking extra precautions. they don't have the same kind of specificity here they've had in other threats. what they have is significant personalities being involved in the threat stream and i think that's why they take it seriously. >> we are living in a post-benghazi world and benghazi drives so much of this. >> exactly. so richard haas, talk a little bit about -- what's the president's for closing -- precedence for closing 22 embassies and this al qaeda resurgence. >> let me start with the latter. people are focusing on the u.s. reaction which i think is appropriate. the bigger story this is the new normal. this is now a middle east where you no longer have countries that are essentially controlled by their governments. it's been the case in pakistan for some time, which is w

detroit on christmas day and a 2010 plot to send bombs in printer cartridges in cargo planes bound for the u.s. both plots were foiled at the last minute. in 2009, al asiri even planted a bomb on his own brother in his underwear or a body cavity. the brother got close to saudi arabia's counter terror chief and set it off, killing himself but not the saudi minister. >> what does it say that he does this with his own brother? >> it says that he's absolutely ruthless. not only is ibrahim al asiri absolutely ruthless, he is, according to leading explosive experts in the west, really good at what he does. he's proud the most sophisticated devices ever seen from al qaeda. >> reporter: last year, u.s. officials say al asiri was behind another foiled plot to send another bomb in the underwear of a terrorist on a commercial plane bound for the u.s. the head of the tsa called that a next gen device. >> it was a new type of explosive that we had never seen and either attempted in the u.s. or around the world by terrorists. so all of our explosive detection equipment which screens over a milli

it comes to stars like the texas rangers nelson cruz. when it comes to the detroit tigers, jhonny peralta. are they going to accept that suspension and take it now and if a guy like nelson cruz does that, then he would be able to rejoin his team by the time the playoff starts. the trick there, is the team going to make the playoffs without one of its big stars. if he decides, instead, to fight the suspension and as we said, these guys can play during their appeal, he can help his team during that time, but depending on how the timing works out with that appeal, hey, maybe that suspension kicks in instead right during the postseason. we have to wait and see how these guys decide to handle it. we know how a-rod is going to handle it. he said he will fight everything tooth and nail. >> so interesting to see how this affects the race for the pen pe p peninate. i know you have a question for my next guest here. how did major league baseball and a-rod get to this point? let's go back to january when the "miami news times" broke the story. cnn's john zarrella covered it. >> reporter: called biog

of detroit and chicago that these cities in deep financial trouble may with looking -- may be looking to push some retirees into the health care exchanges instead of having to pay for health care benefits until they're the age of 65 or so, michael. if that happens and, again, it's just an idea, but if health care becomes entrenched in that way because of decisions made by politicians at a local level, how does that influence the political debate? >> i think one of the ways is that if cities, cities with big payrolls like shaq -- like chicago dump their employees on the health care exchanges, this program is going to end up costing more than has been projected, because those assumptions were baked into the bill. one of the things you have to realize about this bill is that even its backers admit that it was not the ideal piece of legislation they wanted. that's because after the victory of scott brown, the republican in the special senate election in january 2010, democrats no longer had the 60 votes they needed to beat back a pily buster in the -- filibuster in the senate. and their only path
